10the edition “TO WORK / TO SCHOOL WITHOUT CAR”
Since a few years companies and schools of the Brussels Capital Region have been co-thinking - together with Brussels Mobility - about their mobility while taking action in order to improve mobility and traffic safety for everyone by means of their Mobility Plan.
In order to help them set up an sensitization campaign for all their staff, students or teachers, Brussel Mobility is organizing the 10th edition of the action "To school/work without a car", between 16 and 22 September. The purpose of this action is crystal clear: to guide the drivers of 25 selected companies towards a more sustainable means of transport and make the staff and students of more than 175 other Brussels companies and 100 Brussels schools familiar with a more durable type of mobility.
So, our partners STIB, SNCB, De Lijn, Tec and Villo! will donate free transport passes to RTL BELGIUM ; Epsylon ; Euler-Hermes Belgium S.A. ; AutoVision S.A./N.V. ; les hopitaux IRIS SUD, le CHU Saint-Pierre, la Clinique Sans Souci, APB, le Service Public Francophone Bruxellois, HR-RAIL, Godiva Belgium, Delhaize, RVT Nazareth, VDAB, ACV-CSC, Nestlé & Nespresso, Landsbond Christelijke Mutualiteiten, CTR- Hopital Erasme, Commission européenne, The Bank of New York Mellon, RTBF, VIVAQUA, Manpower Group, Groupe P&V et BESIX SA. While Pro Velo, CyCLO, les Ateliers de la rue Voot, Bike to Work and Taxistop are offering discounts and services. 175 other participating companies also receive communication material as to organise their Mobility Week. In more than 100 schools, pupils, parents and teachers are encouraged to put aside the car during this particular week and go to school on foot, by bike or using public transport. The start of the school year indeed is the perfect moment to pick up good habits!
ASSESSMENT OF PREVIOUS EDITIONS
Since 2008, our companies have launched numerous initiatives in order to encourage their staff to try other means of transport instead of merely their cars by closing their parking area, handing out gift vouchers, electric bikes testing, sensitization campaigns towards carpooling, information stands on sustainable mobility, measuring the tire pressure...
Within the scope of this action, Pfizer and Besix have been awarded with the prize "To work without car" in reward of their dynamism during last year’s campaign!
